  1. Fiber Optics Brochure
    2/8/2016

    Fiber optic components can be integrated into all-fiber optical systems to allow the optical path to remain closed, and to eliminate the risk of system contamination. Fiber optics may also be used to simplify alignment, reduce loss, and improve optical efficiency. The line of active and passive fiber optic components and modules from Gooch & Housego provide the performance and reliability needed for a variety of applications including space, terrestrial, and submarine telecommunications systems. This brochure provides an overview on G&H fiber optics assemblies and subsystems , active components, and passive components.

  2. Electro-Optics Brochure
    2/8/2016

    Gooch & Housego offers a comprehensive range of electro-optic solutions for a diverse range of applications in the ultraviolet through infrared wavelengths. Pockels cells from Gooch & Housego are designed to polarize the state of light that passes through it when an applied voltage brings about birefringence changes in an electro-optic crystal. These cells can also function as optical switches, or laser Q-switches when used in conjunction with polarizers. This brochure covers the available Pockels cells, Pockels cell drivers, and Lithium Niobate Q-switches from G&H, and their electro-optics technical and manufacturing capabilities.

  6. First Surface Mirrors
    2/8/2016

    Conventional mirrors are constructed with a glass protective surface and a “silvering” second surface. In high precision applications, these second surface mirrors have distinct disadvantages such as refracted or bent images, loss of energy, a dim and distorted reflection, as well as a faint secondary reflection known as a “ghost image.” Abrisa offers front or first surface mirrors as a solution that provides clear reflections without ghosting. This application note introduces First Sensor surface mirrors, how they work, and their ideal applications.
